We were staying nearby so thought we would drop in. The staff were very helpful and the food was great. Also the food was great value for money. If we were staying in the area again we would go back. Children welcome

Went into the black horse for food had to wait years to order, had no waitress come over. I went to the bar to order in the end even though it was table service. Whilst waiting for table service the staff served other tables taking their orders for food and just left us out all together, even though we where...

You really have to get the heating sorted out in the restaurant , unless you are sitting by a radiator or right on top of the little fire you freeze to death !.

As usual, our stay here was excellent. We are always made to feel at home and treated as one of the locals. It is an old pub but the rooms are comfortable and are in keeping with the character of the building. Cannot fault the food and all the staff are brilliant.

Having looked at trip advisor for places to eat we booked a table at The Black Horse. We were not disappointed as the food was freshly cooked & the portions sizes were excellent value.

What a lovely old building with lots of history to it. Everyone was very friendly and welcoming. We booked in and made our way to our room. The decor was very tired and could do with some tlc. The room itself had a rather old yellow sink in it with taps that dripped once they'd been turned on and the...
